Chevron puts Permian at heart of its net-zero strategy

Robust FCF and driving down emissions in the shale patch are central planks in the US major’s journey towards low-carbon energy

Mounting production in the Permian basin is set to play a crucial role in Chevron’s pivot towards low-carbon energy, through driving down emissions and generating the free cash flow (FCF) needed to fund the decarbonisation push.  The company’s Permian output is projected to almost double to over 1mn bl/d over the next five years. And the major expects upstream growth to lift FCF by more than 10pc annually, assuming an oil price above $50/bl. Like other big-name players in the US shale patch, Chevron consolidated its Permian footprint last year.
